To celebrate the impending release of the Xbox One X, Microsoft Australia has announced the Xbox Stay n' Play hotel in Sydney. The only difference is that it's all free.

Guests will be able to check in using their Xbox Gamertag on site. The best part is that this works between all of the consoles in the Xbox console family, which means you could connect an Xbox One to an Xbox 360, and even the original Xbox console for multiplayer games.

Overnight accommodation is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Located in Pirrama Park, Pyrmont - this establishment will open its doors on Friday 3rd November 2017 until Sunday 5th 2017, and will offer four themed suites focused on some of the console's biggest first and third party games including Forza Motorsport 7, Assassin's Creed Origins and Minecraft. Check-in will be a 8pm and check-out will be at 8am.

You can choose from a nighttime (8pm to 8am) or daytime (two hour sessions) booking.

The price of gas in Rhode Island is down two cents this week and continues to fall from its post-hurricane spike last month. Some areas of the midwest have seen prices rise as refineries undergo seasonal maintenance and inventories tighten.

Reservations are now open, but if you miss out you can still check out the lobby where there will be a few console/TV setups available to play.

More original Xbox games are coming to the Xbox One in Spring 2018, thanks to the magic of Microsoft's backward compatibility.

These games, like the 13 now available, will run at 1080p on the Xbox One and Xbox One S. The powerful Xbox One X, launching November 1, will run the first-generation Xbox games at 4K, some 16 times more than their original resolution. We hope the experience gives them the chance to experience true 4K gaming in a genuinely unique environment, days before the product is available in stores.

To reserve your place at the Xbox Stay n' Play hotel, head to the Eventbrite page.

[10/24 Update] Added all 13 new Xbox Original backwards compatible games now available on Xbox One.
